Asters are a great perennial for if you need late summer and fall color. The ’Early blue’ variety starts blooming in July and goes on all the way to October!
They get around 10-12 inches (30-35cm) tall and prefer full sun. In my garden they get around 7-8 hours of sun and they do really well.
One flowerbed – three seasons
It’s almost hard to believe that this is the same bed! Early spring this bed is full of tulips. In June the peonies put on quite a show and late summer to fall belongs to the Asters.
